Lubiere (13271) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 19, 2008
A hazed amber ale with an extra thick onctuous light moka head. Light nutty malt aroma, non-descript. In mouth, a light malt with rather metallic hops. Thin bodied, unsatisfying. On tap at JD Wetherspoons, Heathrow, Mid November 2006.

lborg, DK @ The Wharf. Dark yellow to light amber color with a fine head. Quite pleasing hop aroma - not too strong, not too light. Light body and a good balance of malt and hop bitterness. A hint of sweet on the initial finish and then bitterness for the lasting finish.

bobinlondon (1294) - Harrow, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 30, 2008
Handpulled cask at JDW Watford. Lively pint, brown with good creamy head (without sparkler). Juicy malt with good resinous hop flavours. 20 years ago all of Sheps beers were as good as this. Its nice to know they are still capable of producing a quality ale showcasing their local hops.

Maria (10213) - Thisted, DENMARK - JUN 6, 2008
Cask. Its a dark amber with an aroma of malt, fruit and pumpkin. The flavour has a light, smooth sweetness with notes of caramel, roasted malt and a slightly dry and bitter citrus. Its uncomplicated and charming.

Pours deep brown amber with a great, creamy yellow-white head. Aroma is very pleasant, fine caramel, pine, grass and flowery hops. Fine carbonation, lightly creamy. Good flavour, some caramel with a great hops profile. Dry bitterness with pine and grassy hops. A big positive surprise for me.
